How about an article on raising blue ribbon crops for the county fair? I want to enter for the first time and don’t know how to go about it. Do you have to prepare your crops in a special way, i.e. withhold water, fertilizer, etc.? I know there are secrets out there. Maybe someone can give them up so I can try my hand?
